Actor's bloody 'death' drives home anti-whaling message

From Australia: 'Ultimate death scene' for Sea Shepherd by The Works

Actor's bloody 'death' drives home anti-whaling message

Warning: This video is rather graphic and potentially disturbing.

Australian actor David Field interprets the death throes of a whale at the hands of the whaling industry. The video leads to a microsite where the organisation solicits donations.

Said the actor (in a press release):

The cruelty inflicted on whales is shocking and while most people abhor whaling I think many don’t realise just how brutally these sea mammals are butchered. As a supporter of Sea Shepherd I want to bring this barbaric practice to the attention of as many people as possible in the hope that we can get it stopped.
